Fishing Sturgeon Lake

Sturgeon Lake is part of the Kawartha Lakes of the province of Ontario, and is classified as the Trent-Severn Waterway. There are several communities around including Sturgeon Point, Lindsay, Fenelon Falls, Dunsford, and Bobcaygeon. Cameron Lake, the Scugog River flow, and Emily Creek all flow into Sturgeon Lake while Bobcaygeon River is the outflow. This is a deep lake that is known for trout, and is one of the most prominent locations for those searching for this particular fish. Known for its depth and long shoreline this is a great lake for shore fishing as well as fishing out of your boat.

When fishing Sturgeon Lake you can find walleye, northern, lake trout, suckers, white fish, and barbot. The depth of Sturgeon Lake makes it perfect for fishing for trout, but you can catch other varieties here just as successfully. We have many different sources for fishing reports, fishing guides, and even fishing charters that you can take advantage of. Some fishermen like to go off their own intuition, but others like the skilled insight of a local guide. Fishing guides can take you to fishing spots that tourists do not know about, and you are pretty much guaranteed to catch fish when you use their services. It is also important if you are fishing to check out the fishing reports, and we have links to those on our website as well.

Through our Sturgeon Lake fishing maps, you can also see where you can camp, lodge, and various tackle shops that are in the area. Thankfully, there are a lot of other creeks and rivers surrounding Sturgeon Lake if you want to try your hand at fishing in different spots. Some of the most popular areas are Pearns Creek, Martin Creek, and McLaren Creek. Many fishermen suggest that you should travel to river mouths if you are fishing for trout and want to change up your locale. This Y-shaped lake is 16 miles from one end to another and only 2 miles wide, and there are plenty of fishing spots to be found within this body of water.

When you are not on the lake there are a number of communities around that you can visit, or select your lodging. This is a great experience for those that want to take a fishing party, or even a fishing group that has people along that want to take part in local tourism. You can enjoy the local shops and historical landmarks of these areas. We suggest that you take a trip up to Sturgeon Lake to experience some of the best sport fishing that the country has to offer. When you are done enjoying your fishing you can travel around and enjoy the beauty of the countryside.
